7 Randoms About Moi

My friend, LHD, at Fillies and Juleps gave me a Stylish Blogger Award.  :)  Normally, I'm not big on forwards or chain emails...but Mr. D keeps telling me I need to get more personal on my blog (yes, he reads - haha) and I keep trying to tell him y'all will get to know "me" with time.  Anyway, this lovely award from LHD seemed like the perfect way to tell y'all a few random facts about moi. 

1.  I hate candy.  That's right.  I HATE it!  I love chocolate...but I hate all hard candy, gummy candy, bubble gum, etc.  It's gross, tastes bad, smells disgusting and the noises people make while eating candy or chewing gum really cause me to have an out of body experience.  (I hate the chomping and popping of gum and the slurping and sucking sound people make when they have candy.  I know - I'm an alien, right?)
My go to items in checkout lane of the grocery are peanut m&m's or Reese's cups.  Mmmmmm.

2. I love all movies but if I had to pick only one movie to watch for the rest of my life it would definitely be Father of the Bride.  I can watch this movie over and over and over.  I think I drive Mr. D crazy sometimes because I watch this movie at least 3 times a week.  I know it sounds ridiculous but something about this movie just makes my insides all warm and fuzzy.  I like to watch it on my way to sleep at night and put it on repeat so if I wake up in the middle of the night to use the restroom I can catch a few moments before I fall back to sleep.  A few days before the wedding I made my Dad and Mr. D both sit down and watch this movie with me.  They were squealing with delight (okay maybe not...but it made me happy). 

3. Speaking of weddings...I love them!  We were married a year and a half ago and I still watch our wedding slide show ALL the time.  When I first received the slide show I would watch it so often I thought I might break the link.  Every time I watch the slide show and hear the music I get to relive our day and it makes me so happy.  I also love to stalk other peoples weddings on facebook.  (There.  I've said it.  Now judge away.)

4. If I could have the wardrobe of any TV character it would be Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl or Betty Draper from Mad Men.  Both of their clothes are just my style and absolutely to die for!  Coincidentally, GG and MM are two of my favorite shows on TV...but I watch many more. 

Blair on Gossip Girl.

5. I have an obsession with paper products.  I can spend hours in a stationary store and  I LOVE to look at and touch all the pretties.  It took me days to decide on our Christmas card this year because I made 25 different cards before finally narrowing it down to one.  Trust me when I say I agonized over the decision for days. 

6. I could spend every single day at a Disney Park and be perfectly happy.  When I walk through the entrance to the Magic Kingdom (or any other Disney park for that matter) something completely changes the way I feel and I get this feeling in my stomach.  Visiting Disney World takes me to another place where I am completely care free and just want to giggle all day.  I love going to Disney and can't get enough!!! 

My Sis & I at Disney on her Birthday.  It's her favorite too!

7. I can eat Mexican food morning, noon and night.  It's definitely my favorite and I never tire of it.  If you're ever up for some Mexican food let me know and I'll meet you there.

  1. I did notice you really do love Mexican food, huh? Now I'm craving it. Next time you're here, we'll have to go.

  2. Well I'll try not to hold the candy thing against you... and I'm a tad bit obsessed with Disney. I'm trying to get my husband to agree to going on a Disney Cruise. I hate cruises, he doesn't want to go to Disney World - I think its a good meet in the middle.

  3. Aw B! I love this. FOB is a great movie choice and i'm pretty sure the taco bell by mi casa used to know me by name...hehe. thanks for the tag too :) Love u!

  4. We should plan a Disney Trip! My family used to go every summer!

  5. No candy!?! Oh no! But agreed, people do not know how to eat politely, gum especially heebs me out!
    I'm obsessed with Disney movies so I can imagine I would love DisneyLand even more!
    I love these little "get to know" things, they're lots of fun! :) glad to know you a little better now.

  6. Your wedding pictures are amazing!! What a beautiful day!!

    And I would totally want to raid Blair's closet as well:)
